We know all these facts that there are many versions of John 1:1, nothing knew to me or our organization. Whats the point of this? This fact is all cleared up for us . In the last book of the Bible, namely, in Revelation 19:13, John calls him “The Word of God,” saying: “And his name is called The Word of God.” (AV; Dy) Note that his name is not called “God the Word,” but is called “The Word of God,” or God’s Word. Hence John 1:1 must mean, at most, that the Word was of God.

Janko—Ask What’s the point of this

Answer GW writes on 2006-09-03 21:21:57

Excellent Answer-Janko--The point is you got it—you got the point—Congregations--Many do not.
There are many versions of John 1:1, but Millions of People think
The JW’s NWT is the Only One that Translates it that way---and the word was a god—
Now your readers can know the truth also.

But there is more!!!
How does this tie into the Real Theology of the Original Manuscripts---Part of the answer is in your WT Library. Print the articles for your
Viewers --if you can find them in your Library.
There are only partial articles in Your Library that discloses the matter –and-
addresses it to the Original Manuscripts-.
Do you need help with what keywords (it takes) to pull them up in your WT Library search engine to show your Viewers ??
The WT has it right –but needs to extend on it---
It would be nice for you to get them out of your Library for your Readers --if you can--- GW

The Question Should be Posted as Theology effects Jn 1.1 How and Why Compared to the Original Manuscripts-?
This Question goes beyond any Versions--or Translaton---Janko--Are you a Translator ?
